Lucky lucky! Glad you got the tank and everything worked out. I am sure we are all looking forward to seeing pics once you get it set up!

Make sure you put some foam down underneath the tank... rimless tanks do not like to set directly on stands.

House you are just too funny... NOT!!! .... you should see how thick the glass is. I was amazed at the thickness. I guess that is to be expected with a rimless tank. Cross your fingers!

Tab - thanks for the reminder. Will do. Wonder how thick the foam should be? Any ideas?

When I was working for a custom tank manufactor we recomend 1/2" closed cell medium density foam. It will compress down to almost nothing.

Rimless tanks need it so that the glass has room to flex.( just a little bit)

Ocea in North Alabama makes rimless tank with starfire glass. They can make any size you want. Since they do not have any distributor near us in North Alabama, they sell tanks to us at wholesale prices, which make them very attactive to some of us.

Also, Fish Gallery in Houston & I think Dallas no makes the trimless with PVC bottom if you want. The tank at AGA was from them, and I was assured that if we wanted clear silicone would be used.
They are the same company.

I know this thread has been dead for almost a year...but any updates on the rimless tank situation Tex Gal? I have been considering getting one here sooner or later but still unsure on which company to go with.

Tex Guys rimless tank has done great! No leaks. Just did a rescape and waiting for the foreground to fill in. Trying to decide if there should be any trailing moss or plant on the big rock....

I'll post a px as soon as the water clears - just did a little glass wipe!

Here you go... It still has a ways to go...
